We have a family friend who lives just outside of Jacksonville, Florida, who happened to have a spare room for us to stay in (and a puppy!), so our intention was to hang around for a weekend. We ended up sticking around a liiiiiittle bit longer, but that’s another post coming up.
Our gracious host took the day off work (!) to show us around St. Augustine, the oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement and port in the continental United States (fun wiki fact for you). It was founded in 1565… I can’t even comprehend that.
It was a very quaint little town, reminiscent of Quebec City in an old, historic way.
Flagler College is such an attractive college…
We had lunch (Cuban sandwiches!) at Columbia Restaurant, which I highly recommend. Great food and atmosphere.
Small town, quick day. Just what we needed for our first experience in Florida!
